Cameron Leads; ESM Drops Out in Hour 13

Dane Cameron holds the lead for Team Penske at Daytona as trouble finds ESM…

Eric Curran is leading the Rolex 24 at Daytona, but attrition took a new victim in the form of the No. 22 Tequila Patron ESM Nissan Onroak DPi.

The car had been running in fifth place overall in the hands of Pipo Derani when it made its way to the pits and came to a halt surrounded by a cloud of smoke.

Gearbox problems ended the day for the sister No. 2 entry earlier in the race, and the No. 22 has officially joined its sibling in an early retirement.

Up front, Cameron holds a 8.281-second advantage in the No. 6 Acura ARX-05 over the No. 5 Action Express Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R.

Graham Rahal holds third in the No. 7 Team Penske Acura, with AXR’s Eric Curran the final driver on the lead lap in fourth.

Dirk Mueller leads Scott Dixon in a Ford Chip Ganassi Racing 1-2 in GT Le Mans, while Madison Snow and Paul Miller Racing continue their strong run at the front of the GT Daytona field in the No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3.

Trent Hindman in the No. 86 Michael Shank Racing Acura NSX GT3 and Sam Bird in the No. 64 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari 488 GT3 run third and fourth in class and on the lead lap in GTD.
